Abstract:The 80-mm-diameter ZnTe single crystals were successfully obtained by the liquid-encapsulated Kyropoulos (LEK) method. Both <100>- and <110>- oriented single crystals were reproducibly grown by using ZnTe seed crystals. Furthermore, 80-mm-diameter, <100> and <110> ZnTe single crystals were obtained by the pulling method. The etch pit densities (EPDs) of the grown crystals by the LEK and pulling methods were lower than 10,000 cm-2. The strain in the grown crystals by the pulling method was lower than that of LEK crystals.
